Was at the local gun shop with the girlfriend and seen a rifle on the shelf that I always wanted. A stainless 44. Looked and the tang had the serial number and the barrel has the tell tale JM stamp. Turn the price tag over and seen $539. Sold! Gf is kinda mad, I'm sure the money was earmarked for something we don't need and that wont be worth anything in 5 years, but I just turned my ears off and bought the thing. It's a peach, even if I do get headaches over it. 😁😁

hawk, nice gun. Very hard one to pass up at that price, even with the lip service from GF.
